Kate Middleton has hit all the right style notes of late, case in point, her latest outing to open a photography centre at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London earlier this week.

Kate wowed in the £1395 ($AU 2.6k) "Iman" off-the-shoulder embellished boucle-tweed midi dress from the Canadian-born, British-based designer's spring '18 collection.

Catherine's dress was paired with plum, velvet Jimmy Choo heels while her gold earrings also by Erdem matched her simple clutch.

It marks Kate's first engagement as patron of the V&A, after being named its first back in March.

The 36-year-old royal toured the opening display, entitled "Collecting Photography: From Daguerreotype to Digital", and took in some of the historical prints and contemporary photography the center is showcasing.

The Duchess returned from maternity leave last week, after giving birth to Prince Louis in April.

Erdem is a much beloved designer of the royals, with speculation around whether the brand has designed Princess Eugenie's wedding dress for her nuptials on Friday. Kate will meet with several curators who worked on the exhibit before unveiling a plaque to commemorate the opening. The mother-of-three's appearance was a surprise to royal watchers as she already had joined husband Prince William for an appearance marking World Mental Health Day on Tuesday.
